    It is my understanding Stiff man was the accepted term at one point. I have an exaggerated startle reflex as part of my Cerebral Palsy. In CP they are trying to figure out if it's a retained Moro Reflex or an exaggerated adult startle reflex as the 2 are slightly different.
    Mild Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy and bad proprioception.
